Description



About the Book



Louis always interrupts! But when others begin to interrupt Louis, he learns how to respectfully wait for his turn to talk.



Book Synopsis



Teaching children how to manage their thoughts and words without interrupting.

Louis always interrupts! All of his thoughts are very important to him, and when he has something to say, his words rumble and grumble in his tummy, they wiggle and jiggle on his tongue and then they push on his teeth, right before he ERUPTS (or interrupts). His mouth is a volcano! But when others begin to interrupt Louis, he learns how to respectfully wait for his turn to talk.

My Mouth Is A Volcano takes an empathetic approach to the habit of interrupting and teaches children a witty technique to help them manage their rambunctious thoughts and words. Told from Louis' perspective, this story provides parents, teachers, and counselors with an entertaining way to teach children the value of respecting others by listening and waiting for their turn to speak.



Review Quotes




Amazing book! I have a class that was very talkative... So, when I read the description I thought it would be perfect and turns out... This book was absolutely PERFECT!!! After reading the story we had several conversations about how others feel when you "erupt" them and how it can interrupt lessons. An amazing story the was written well for any age level to understand the importance of respecting the words of others.

Mrs. Pinck
Teacher



Finally!...A book that deals with the universal challenge of teaching children the social nuances of polite conversation, not interrupting, and when to stop talking. As an educator, Julia Cook combines her many years of experience and profound insight with humor, rhythmic verse, and colorful illustrations to create a book that all children are sure to enjoy (and that every parent, teacher, and child-care provider will undoubtedly appreciate)!

Dr. Laura A. Jana
National Trainer for Reach Out and Read



This book has been great for my 5 year old. We've owned it for about 6 months now. We read it pretty frequently at first, and coupled it with discussions about interrupting. The illustrations and concepts in the book were familiar for my son-- one setting is an elementary classroom, and he was in kindergarten when we got the book, so it made an impact. Now, usually all we have to do is give a gentle reminder that he just interrupted us, and my son will apologize and sit tight until it's his turn to talk.

My four-year-old son loved this book! We’re trying to teach him not to interrupt. This book was highly entertaining and engaging for him, while also teaching a great lesson.
